4.   We raise up our efforts in sharing the Gospel in both our joint ministry as a congregation, and in our individual opportunities to share the faith: … for our witness this week in our various efforts to "Be the Church!" within our communities;  … for the upcoming annual "7th Street Feast" (our October "Mission of the Month" – your donations last week totaled $248).  Let's cultivate awesome relationships for eternity!

5.   We pray for our Nation: seeking the Lord's protection of those serving military deployments to keep us safe (and their families here at home): Anthony Guardado in Japan; Ryan Griffith in Turkey; Cliff Cribb, Shane Martin & Brandon Voorhees in Afghanistan. God Bless America!
